Spring Break Pictures

We went to Kentucky to visit my parents for spring break! This is a tank at the park near their house. Rosie and my sister Hannah… They are so clones of each other! I tried to take nice pictures of the kids in a pretty field, but the only time we had to go to the field was when it was windy with huge clouds alternating blinding sun. I’ll have to dress them up and do pictures in Ohio later, when...

Tons of Pictures from February…

The kids with their cousin Lucy! The girls went to their cousin Lauren’s birthday party in Prestonsburg the next day with the in-laws. I think the girls had a blast at the party. These are pictures my FIL took there. While they were gone we visited with Tyler’s granny. It felt good to be back in Kentucky where everything is familiar. People smile at you, hold doors open, make friendly small talk, and their accents are soft on your ears. Columbus...

The Mantis. AAAAH!

The reaction people have to insects humors me and baffles me. My kids included! Henry and I are excited when a cool bug shows up. The girls? Horrified. And I don’t know why because we’ve lived in a cabin the woods surrounded by tons of bugs, they’ve grown up with me marveling over insects all the time. Why are they so terrified? It’s definitely not due to lack of exposure or the way they were raised! Rosie says that when she...

Birthday Party Fun!

Also from June: These are pictures from a friend’s birthday party for her two sons. They were turning five and three. The kids had SO MUCH FUN at this party. It was at a local farm that hosts parties. They had lots of animals to pet and play with, along with a pond for swimming. My friend’s daughter, sister of the birthday boys. Mama and baby peafowl! Or really peahen and babies, if we want to get technical. MY FAVORITES!! This...

Super Fun Water Balloon Fight!

A couple of weekends ago we went to my aunt and uncle’s house to visit with them and my cousins, who were here from out of state. Fun times were had by all. The kids keep asking when we can do that again! Ada was approaching with a water balloon… Victory daaaaaance! We also had the GoPro out. It was set in video mode, but also set to take pictures every five seconds. The results of those settings are so hit...

Pigs, Pigs Everywhere!

Another catch-up entry! We also took Vlad to Slate Run Historical Farm. This is actually a metro park just south of Columbus and free to visit. I love this place. It reminds me of growing up as a kid on my family’s dairy farm. I so desperately wished to give my children this childhood too, but despite all of my attempts it hasn’t worked out yet. Henry chose his outfit. I couldn’t convince him to wear the matching shoes! This house...

Yesterday…

Rosie is getting so big. It’s unbelievable. I’m not sure how this is happening so quickly. It was almost 80 degrees out, so I let Henry play in the water. Ada played too, but not for long because the water was freezing cold! Rosie was too old to even be interested. This one…hahaha! He was pretending to be Hulk. Of course today it’s gray, cloudy, misting rain, and in the 50’s outside. One day of nice weather, five days of gray...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

I’m still trying to catch up on our vacation pictures and videos! We had such a great time. Did I mention that? On Tuesday of our vacation week we went to Universal Orlando to check out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. SO EXCITING! I never thought I would be able to go there. Ever. A friend had connections who got us free Universal tickets. How awesome is that? My parents watched Ada and Henry back at the rental house so...

Owen.

I had a fundraising photo session the other night. I’ve been trying to book a few sessions in Columbus and it’s hard. I can’t seem to get my business off the ground. There are many photographers that have a basic DSLR and charge so little money for tons of photos. Anyway, this family was really sweet.  Their eight year old son has autism and ADHD, which is the exact same diagnosis Greg had.  We did daily care for Greg when Rosie...

Monarch Photos

We brought in some monarch eggs we found on milkweed leaves, raised them, hatched them, and had so much fun doing it! And then this happened… I was blown away by the beauty. I had no idea the the green part would turn clear. When I was pregnant I often had these vivid dreams where my stomach would become clear like a window and allow me to look in and see the baby. It turns out Monarchs really do that. Wow....
